I spent 20+ years as a letter carrier for the Postal Service....all because of Gomez. He knocked on my door one day and said, "why don't you go to work for the post office?" A couple of days later, he brought me a study guide. The rest is history. He was a good man, sometimes gruff but always honest. I will miss him and wish I could have paid my respects personally. He left this world quietly but he left many, many friends behind.
My deepest condolences to Margaret and Sarah.

Our deepest condolences to Bill’s family and loved ones. We are saddened to hear of his passing. He would stop by Pastimes for a cold one, some lunch and to visit with his buddies. We will certainly miss having him around.
He was one of the good ones.
